Hi Pi :-)
Voodoo 3 should be good enough to run it, however, you should have openGL drivers for them. Even then I'm not sure if it would work right now because it's basically a 2nd video card and my code doesn't check for them. So chances are that it will only try to use your primary video card. Software openGL rendering is not supported.
Somebody else reported a sound initializing problem, so that may be your problem too...
You can check what's going wrong by opening the java web start application manager, go to file->preferences->advanced and tick 'log output'. The logfile should show some error messages.
